The Blank Table: June 6th Dinner

June 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Embark on a culinary journey with The Blank Table as we present our second dinner of the 2024 season on Thursday, June 6th! Delight in the culinary mastery of Jonathan Zaragoza (of Chicago’s famed Birrieria Zaragoza and El Oso) and Frida Lucia (of Tijuana’s Aruba Day Drink, a top 50 best bars in the world), promising an extraordinary fusion of power and creativity. Join us for an evening dedicated to culinary excellence and innovation, where every bite is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of both chef and mixologist.

Raised on Chicago’s Southside, Chef Jonathan Zaragoza, inspired by his family’s strong cooking roots, began learning the art of making birria at the age of 12, later opening Birrieria Zaragoza in 2007, and with a culinary journey spanning from Michelin-starred establishments to his own restaurants, he continues to showcase his Mexican heritage and traditions internationally while managing Birrieria Zaragoza and El Oso.

Frida Lucia is currently showcasing her mixology skills at Aruba Day Drink in Tijuana, Baja California. The bar achieved a remarkable feat, securing the 40th spot among the best bars in North America in 2023. With Frida Lucia’s expertise and Aruba Day Drink’s esteemed reputation, patrons can anticipate an extraordinary and memorable drinking experience from this renowned establishment.

ABOUT THE BLANK TABLE: This multi-sensory evening features a five-course pre-fixe menu with pairings from some of San Diego’s top mixologists and the region’s winemakers. TBT is designed as a secret dinner series, with most of the details- including location and menu- revealed the evening before the event via email with a link to an obscure, unknown and off-the-beaten-path location. Committed to reinvesting in the local community and native creatives, menus feature sustainable, seasonal and complex flavors while utilizing a broad range of spirits explicitly crafted for each dish. Co-founded by Alexandria Ott, The Blank Table is produced by Chrome City Creative Studio in partnership with Be Saha Hospitality Group.
